What a wonderful day. We couldn't have been more blessed! We had family from both sides here to give thanks to our God for His abundant blessings. The food seemed never ending (still does), we had the usuals, turkey, mashed potatoes and stuffing, as well as favorites we count on; cranberry salad, salmon ball and apple pie. Sadly my grandma was not feeling up to traveling, so she was very much missed, but it was nice to share a conversation by phone with her. Our guest list included: Joan and Curt, Roy and Audra, Genny and Colton, Geoff and Kat, Sheila and Leo - it was great to have us all together. After dinner most everyone headed home, but for the rest of us, we enjoyed some time chatting and a few of us played Disney DDR. Got us a little exercise after all that good food. I hope your Thanksgiving was blessed and memorable too!
Check out my beautiful new sink! We bought this sink from Craigslist a few months back, and we finally went and purchased a new faucet to go with it. After a full day Scott had it fully installed and ready to be used! It looks so pretty and made for a great little facelift to the kitchen. It was wonderful to have it all done before Thanksgiving. I am so blessed I have a husband that is so handy!!

Meadowdale Beach Hike. A most beautiful hike, gorgeous surroundings and when you reach the end of the trail it opens up to the beach. It is a like a special gift when you have arrived. While we went we had brought with us the coordinates for our first geocaching experience. SUCH FUN! This one was not super easy as you had to decipher some clues, do a little mathematics and then receive the next coordinates. It was great! We ended up making a mistake, but down at the beach we found the clue we needed and SUCCESS! We did it! We had the right coordinates, we headed back to the trail and searched for about 10 minutes and found our cache! WOWY! Jordan picked out a French coin from the box and Atira snagged a beautiful bookmark and a travel bug. We of course left some new trinkets for the next person to find. We signed the book and headed out! After a quick stop by Scott's work we were on our way home! Once home we started preparing for our evenings event, a sukkah party. We invited some friends to come and celebrate God's feast day and it was such an incredible joy! Several friends came, sang and danced with us, read scriptures and of course ate, ate, ate! We sat out by the fire pit reading the bible, discussing scripture and sharing with one another...my favorite times. The kids wore glow sticks, ran amuck and had a fabulous time! I am so thankful to have had such an incredible and memorable birthday.
